After the union of the Church of Scotland Mission with the Gospel Missionary Society in 1946, branches were formed at Ng’enda, Kambui and Kihumbuini, and by 1962 the Church had 17 branches. About then, as national Independence was drawing near, the women were feeling the need of having an African leader in Guild work; and so in 1962-63 Mrs Priscilla Mereka was seconded to Scotland to benchmark women’s work overseas; then in 1964 she was appointed the organiser of Guild work in the whole Presbyterian Church of E.A. Since then the number of branches and membership has grown tremedously. Members normally meet regulary, and find out ways of helping in their local situations by initiating and participating in various activities.
Members make an outstanding contribution to the life of the Church in worship and singing, and these days are increasingly serving as deacons. In ways like these the Presbyterian Church is showing the people of Kenya that women have a key part to play in nation-building. In addition they particpate to charitable work,
The women of the Presbyterian Church join with women the world over in the Women’s World Day of Prayer, and through groups like the Fellowship of the Least Coin. The Woman’s Guild has a national Board which meets three times a year to plan and co-ordinate the progress and activities of all local branches throughout the Church.
